AKA: Red-spotted bluethroat, White-spotted bluethroat,
A small robin-like bird, the male is unmistakable in spring with his bright blue throat, bordered below with bands of black, white and chestnut. Its central throat spot can be white or chestnut. They can be quite secretive, flicking into the cover of a bush with a flash of their chestnut tail patches.
